Inescapable is a remarkable storyline filled with lessons about making great decisions, forgiving and letting offences go, freedom to love freely again, and never believing and claiming that things can never change. I immediately connected with Lizzie and her intense emotions that she had to encounter and deal with. A stalker threatened to harm her and in order to protect her child, she had to flee. She had to return home to her father who degraded with harsh criticism and words as a child. The book does a wonderful job at presenting the importance of speaking life enhancing words to our children. They will remember all of the hurtful words and positive we spoke to them. The effects of belonging to a strong religion that doesn’t forgive past offenders who make mistakes and wrong choices are demonstrated in the town in this book. It took Lizzie a while to understand that God loved her unconditionally and His love isn’t like her father’s love. She had to learn to forgive and heal from the past wounds or she ran into the risk of repeating the damage to her daughter.
I enjoyed how Nancy Melh described the characters and plot in extremely detail. I felt like I was watching the story unfold line by line and page by page. The Western theme aspect to the novel added a nice country flavor to the plot. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy a mystery merged with forgiveness, healing, love, and overcoming pain. Major life lessons are woven into the concept of an appealing debut book in the series. I can’t wait to dig deeper into the inscrutability of Lizzie and the new challenges that are awaiting her in the next Road to Kingdom adventure! If you’re looking for a suspenseful packed novel then I highly recommend this novel!

Page-Turning Romantic Suspense Set Against the Backdrop of a Small Mennonite Town
Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, her family, and her faith with plans never to return. Five years later, Lizzie finds she'll have to run again. False accusations at her job, a stalker, and a string of anonymous threatening letters have left her with no other options. This time, however, her escape is back to Kingdom, her hometown.
As Lizzie becomes reacquainted with Kingdom, she realizes she may not have left her Mennonite roots and her faith as firmly in the past as she thought.
She draws on the support of Noah Housler, an old friend, as she hides out and attempts to plan her next steps.
When it becomes painfully clear that the danger has followed Lizzie to Kingdom, suspicions and tensions run high, and she no longer knows who to trust. With her life and the lives of those she loves at risk, Lizzie will have to run one last time--to a Father whose love is inescapable.
